Try camel riding

When visiting Morocco, you can’t help but try the famous camel riding. The local camel ranch can take you on the nicest paths for camel riding, guiding you through a small regional Sahara-style desert, or along the beautiful surfing beaches.

Visit Essaouira

Essaouira is the art capital of Morocco and is often referred to as the white-blue city. The old medina with its mysterious, narrow lanes has already enchanted many. It is famous for the annual Gnawa Festival Essouira, the fresh fish at the harbor, and of course, the perfect conditions for kite surfing.

Visit Marina with esplanade

Every time you stay in Agadir, a visit to the Marina D’Agadir is an absolute must. Take a long walk along the endless beach promenade where you will find plenty of restaurants and cafes to relax and take a breath.

Visit Souk el Hadad

The Souk el Hadad is known as one of the largest and most beautiful bazaars in Africa, where you can immerse yourself in Moroccan trade. The Souk has everything - from leather, colorful fabrics to fresh vegetables, fruits, and spices. A must see on your Agadir's attractions list.

Visit the Kasbah

The Kasbah is a small place on the highest mountain of Agadir where you can admire the entire city of Agadir. Originally, the Kasbah was built to protect the city against attacks, the strategic design of this fortress-like complex is still unmistakable. It is considered to be the last remaining historical monument in the area that can still be visited.

Visit Paradise Valley

Not far from the retreat location is a very beautiful and unique place, the Paradise Valley. Amidst the mountains and surrounded by palm trees, Paradise Valley was discovered over 15 years ago by hippies. Nowadays, it’s well known as a fun and relaxing place to swim, climb the cliffs, and sun bathe.

Other activities

There are other activities available for you during the free time, such as go to a hammam, get a massage, practice yoga on the terrace, quad biking, read books, magazines, and travel guides at the library, surfing, take a dip at the beach, and watch surf movies in the communal lounge.

    "We had a great week with Westsurf Morocco - the accomodation at Tamraght was comfortable and cosy - the perfect haven to come back to after a days surfing (finished off by yoga). The atmosphere was great - nice group of people we were surfing (learning) with, the hosts Janina & Aziz, and the surf coach Omar were all super nice people who made the experience all around great. We'd recommend them to anyone! Thanks guys!"

    "We had our best time in Morocco here after traveling around some cities. Aziz and Janina are very kind people and I love their cute dog Mali! Haha. The atmosphere there was so nice and cozy, and the lunch sandwiches were different every day. Every night they were trying to arrange different dinner at different places. Almost all the people there had the new year's eve dinner together and they also helped me to celebrate my friend's birthday. And my coach was also very responsible. Hope one day I can go back there and for sure I will still choose WestSurf."

    "My stay at West Surf Morocco was truly amazing. Janina picked me up and she has such a friendly vibe that I felt right at home. She is a great yoga coach too. She really adjusts the yoga to what sore surfer muscles need. And, as a first timer at surfing like me, my muscles really needed some TLC after a day of surfing. Aziz and his surf coaches helped me to ride my first waves! Really friendly and professional instructions. I learned a lot. The combination of surfing and yoga is great. And the way Janina and Aziz combine this are very organic and laid back. It helped me to get into this easygoing vibe. The Villa Solaria is so nice, really clean, and well maintained. Thanks for a great stay. When I visit Morocco again I would surely stay again."

We started as surfing beginners and the training was very professional and individual! We got all the attention we could wish for and made lots of progress in a short time. We will definitely return for more and can only recommend for everyone who would like to surf in Morocco!"

We stayed at beautiful Villa Solaria, which is such an oasis full of plants, birds, lots of little places to rest and chill in sun or shade. The breakfast was on the terrace overlooking the ocean. What else do you need? We learned surfing within one week!"

What else do you need?! We learned surfing within one week! Yeah even caught a couple of green waves the last 2 days. Aziz is a very patient, lovely, and funny surf guide who knows the best spots around and it felt like you would surf with friends, not with someone who gets payed from you."

    "Both are very enthusiastic to present the Moroccan culture like markets, best places to eat out, and so on... And we also went on a day trip to Paradise Valley which was included in the full surf packet to have a day out to relax in the canyon, went for a walk, and saw the amazing countryside! We also got very lucky to have dinner at their cute place and they cooked a lovely typical Moroccan meal. Which was the best I've had! After the surf camp we stayed one more week in Morocco but we couldn't sneak that deep into the culture and the people than we did with Janina and Aziz. I would love to come again and again and again...Thanks for everything!"

    "I stayed at my hotel in Agadir, but how I realized later surf camp house was much better than any hotel in Agadir ! I spent four days with Aziz and Janina, I can say that those days were the best in all my holidays. Aziz is such a good surf teacher, he explain everything step by step so surfing become more enjoying that you can imagine. Every day different surfing spot makes it just more interesting. I can wait to get back in your surf camp ! Hope to see you soon."

    "We had a wonderful stay in a villa in the small city of Tamraght close to the more touristic Agadir. Our surf vacation was beyond excellent not only thanks to our over the top teachers Aziz and Ismael, but also because of the small group size, and the Moroccan and in particular our hosts hospitality, which made us feel at home instantly. In short: highly recommendable for everyone who wants to experience surfing on any skill-level in a family-like atmosphere. Note: Janina, Aziz, and Ismael speak excellent English, French, and German."

    "I never surfed before, so I was really surprised that my excellent (and also very patient :)) surf teacher Ismail was able to teach me so much! He was never tired to encourage me again and again and supported me where he could, that´s why I managed to stand on the board at the first day - it was such a great feeling! "

    "Everybody was so lovely and welcoming and it felt like home already after a short time, because of that we couldn´t leave after a week. We changed our plans and stayed another three days."

    "The accommodation in Tamraght was great. Our room, including private bathroom, was pretty and also clean. In addition we had a view to the sea. That was wonderful, especially when you start your day with having a breakfast at the terrace or watching the sunset on the roof terrace."

    "Also the organization before our trip started was perfect. Janina was kindly and answered every question within a very short time. We knew that we can contact her in any case, as she was professional and also lovable. All in all it was way better than expected and I surely will be surfing with Westsurf soon again. Thanks again for the wonderful time, see you soon!"

The surf instructor chose the spots according to the skill level of our group and helped us to catch some good waves."

They took care of us from the moment we stepped out of the airport to the time we had to go back. Aziz is a great instructor and made sure we always correct our mistakes. He also had a very good plan and managed to takes us to several surf spots. Every day after the surf lessons they also took us to check interesting parts of Agadir and its surroundings, and also took us to great places to eat. Overall, I highly recommend West Surf Morocco! I'm definitely repeating this holiday!"

Accommodation is comfortable and has beautiful views from the terrace, food at the villa is superb. Surf lessons were exceptional, I had Aziz that week and he is a great teacher, uses a camera to help you correct any bad habits and is very motivational! Looking forward to returning back to Agadir and will only go back to West Surf."

    "I spent one week with WestSurf (which is run by Janina and Aziz) and had a great time! The hostel: amazing house, super friendly staff, delicious dinners, very clean, great view from the rooftop (perfect for checking the swell / wind). "

    "Surfing - Aziz would pick me up each morning, regularly at 9 am but if you have other ideas, just ask him! Then he made use of his spot-knowledge and depending on wind and swell he suggested a few spots which we checked afterwards. Always offering alternatives, you're gonna find a spot that suits you. When I didn't like the spot or the tide made it impossible to surf there or the wind changed or anything we just changed the spot and had another session! After the first two days it felt like going surfing with friends rather than with the type of guides for which you are just another client and then you're gone."

    "Besides surfing they offer activities like going to Agadir to check out the local market (which is amazing) and Paradise Valley. You could also have a nice time dining out with Janina and Aziz. If you're looking for mass tourism, this is not your place. If you're looking for an individual surf experience and people who are local, know the culture, and understand their spots, give it a try."

    "Spent a little over two weeks in Morocco under the guidance and surf instruction of West Surf Morocco. Overall they were such a wonderful team, both Aziz and Janina were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make sure our trip was amazing. They were really concerned about making sure we learned as beginners to stand on the board, and offered a vast amount of further information about surfboards, surf gear, surfing environments, and the mechanics of surfing. We also went to various surfing spots from Devils Rock, 17, Crocodile, Agadir, and Tifnit (Tiffany to me) which offered a variety of surfing conditions and waves. In addition, they arranged trips for us to Marrakesh and a 4x4 trip through South Morocco. They also had us over to their home for couscous - which was amazing and also taught me how to cook several Moroccan dishes."

We spent time in and around Tamraght and were able to explore up and down the beautiful coastline from there. The surf lesson I had with Aziz was great. I hadn't been near a surfboard for about 10 years, but he was so good at giving direction and advice in the water, that I managed to get up - most importantly I had a great time and loads of fun! It's an amazing part of the world and we'll definitely be back there - there's a lot more surfing in me yet."

The service is really personal and the instructors are really encouraging and pay attention to the details that can help you improve your surfing at whatever level.

    "Trainer Aziz (West Surf Morocco) is gentle man and patient teacher. We could choose the start time of our future lessons, and could transfer our lessons the next day (for legitimate reasons). He transfered us in his car from the hotel where we stayed to the beach where we learned and back. Aziz gave us the necessary equipment for surfing (swimsuits, soft long, and wide boards for ). Also he can help with accommodation, owns surf shop. Aziz made the best impression on me as honest man who loves surfing and respects people."
